The right practice for a person depends on many factors: Are you in crisis or are you in flow? Are you primarily a head, heart, or body person? Are you just beginning to experiment or have you been practicing for decades? These questions, followed by practical and logistical dilemmas associated with finding the support of a solid, trustworthy community and qualified teachers, can leave people stranded, stalled, or completely paralyzed in their quest for transformation.
This is why I co-founded a non-profit organization and digital platform called ContemplativeLife.org. C-Life serves as a digital hub that brings a diverse range of transformative practices under one umbrella to help people connect with the practices and communities they’ve been searching for.
“The real religion of humankind can be said to be spirituality itself… We might also say that
interspirituality — the sharing of ultimate experiences across traditions—is the religion of the third millennium.” (The Mystic Heart, 1999, p. 26)
Brother Wayne’s vision is both a harbinger of andan inspiration to the vision unfolding at Contemplative Life and throughout the interspiritual movement.
So, in alignment with Brother Wayne’s focus on the future, the Contemplative Life platform was designed and built by and for millennials. It has a simple and elegant user interface that offers users a safe space to learn about new practices and connect with practice leaders and communities representing all paths and traditions. In addition to the current web platform, we’re launching a Contemplative Life Community, a private social network that enables members to collaborate and build community with others of like mind without the noise, cross talk, and distractions associated with mainstream social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram.
Contemplative Life exists to meet the changing needs of those involved in the global spiritual revolution currently under way. We welcome your participation and invite you to become part of this evolving community.
